Chinese scientists are producing live mice from adult stem cells, and experts call it an exciting discovery. It represents another breakthrough for adult stem-cell research, according to Ben Kinchlow of the Adult Stem Cells Information Coalition.

“What this discovery by these Chinese scientists proves is that adult stem cells have the capacity to produce almost any other cell, resulting in eventually the, God forbid, cloning of human beings — but more importantly, the curing of diseases,” he notes.

Stem-cell research involving adult cells is already being used to treat more than 70 diseases and medical conditions, while embryonic stem-cell research has not produced one single successful treatment. Kinchlow contends the push for embryonic stem-cell research is greed.
